The Comic Origins of the Survivors’ Guilt in The Walking Dead Season 7

Season 7 of The Walking Dead started with the loss of two main survivors, leaving the rest of the tightly knit group completely broken.

If you haven’t read the comics, you may have missed the graphic origins of some of Season 7’s most iconic moments as the survivors try to cope. Take a look below to see how some of them tried to regain their footing in the new world order of Season 7…

1. Negan’s Parting Words to Rick

This scene, taken straight from the comics, proves that Negan doesn’t just know how to make an entrance but he’s a big fan of a dramatic exit too. Negan’s vulgar goodbye leaves Rick helpless, perfectly illustrating how far the group’s leader has really fallen.

2. Carl Attempts an Assassination

Carl’s surprise attack on Negan at the Sanctuary comes straight from the comics, with the shots and dialogue (“I only want Negan”) mirroring the original artwork. It diverges when it comes to Carl’s kill count. In the show, he takes down two Saviors, but in the comics, he shoots six.

3. Carl Removes His Bandage

From the haunting image of Carl’s missing eye to his tearful rendition of “You Are My Sunshine,” Carl’s one-on-one with Negan is almost identical, and equally tense, on-screen and in the comic. He even gives Carl the same advice: Don’t cover that eye up because no one will mess with you looking like that.
